Rogue Territory‘s greatest strength has always been the way the brand mixes and matches source material. Is it a chore coat? Is it a rider jacket? These sometimes-anachronistic combos have always made for compelling creations—and they’re still doing it today.
Their Cruiser Jacket does just that, notably combining reference points from the classic Type II jacket with the more common Type III trucker jacket. The large chest pockets with the pseudo-pleats recall the best of the 1950s workwear classic, while a longer silhouette and hip-warmer pockets still cater to a more contemporary crowd.
These juxtapositions can also be seen in the 13.5 oz. mystery denim used in this jacket. Woven on old Toyoda looms, the denim is meant to have the look and feel of a loomstate fabric without the guesswork that a typical unsanforized, loomstate fabric might produce. They’ve left the slubby fabric unsinged, but they’ve skewed and sanforized it, so it won’t shrink too much on you.
Finished with chainstitched side seams and custom cross feather buttons, each Cruiser Jacket is made in Downtown Los Angeles by RGTs skilled makers.
